rmtworks Posted June 14, 2016 Share Posted June 14, 2016 Hi everyone! Normally I'd be here to write a cheerful post about what's new in World Automation or about a new suggestion for the server, but today's topic is going to be radically different. Some people will rejoice when reading this, some people will be upset, and others still may follow in my footsteps. So, let's dive right into it: I'm retiring from CraftersLand. If that's all you care about, there's really no need to read the rest of this, because I'm going to just explain my decision and where I'm going from here. I've been around here since June of last year, and things were really quite different for me. I was looking for a place to play Minecraft with the company of peers, and I stumbled upon CraftersLand Tekkit. I really had a great time, when staff came around I was always looking forward to the next rank up and new commands. I stuck with Tekkit across more than a few wipes, and with each wipe, it felt like my attitude and responsibilities changed. No longer was I playing a version of Minecraft with the company of others - instead, I was no longer playing, and only helping and taking care of issues. That wasn't my goal in playing around here. I created World Automation with the hope of relieving my boredom and reinvigorating myself into the ways of old. And it did work - for a while at least - until once again, responsibility took over fun. For those who haven't staffed, being a staff member is difficult. You sacrifice your free time to volunteer and assist others. It's a good experience to have, but it's worth noting how things change over time. As you move up in ranks, you learn the staff you want to be around, and those who you don't. You learn how every staff member has a different perspective - not a wrong perspective, but another perspective you have to consider in your actions. You have to understand your own biases with players, as well as other staffs', and figure out the right thing to do in almost every situation on the server. You always make mistakes along the way, and the challenge is to learn from them and to become a more fair and just staff member through them. And so I did, for a year now. However, the exhaustion and burnout of staffing is getting to me, and it's time for me to take a break - whether permanent or not, I have not decided yet. I can no longer give my 100% to this community, and that's the line I've drawn that shows it's time for me to depart. Thank you for reading, and thank you to everyone who influenced me along the way. I've watched myself - and numerous others - grow and change over the past year. Thank you CraftersLand, I'm signing off. -rmt PS: World Automation development will continue as normal. Heck, I'll probably still be around on the server. New update every 3 weeks. However, I won't be checking the forum for issues to fix and to provide support often. I'll be relying on GitHub now, so if players have issues with the pack itself that need to be fixed, I likely won't see them in a timely manner unless they are posted here: https://github.com/rmtworks/WorldAutomation/issues Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
